Ticketing system for the multimodal seamless travel
The IT2Rail project is designed as the first step towards the long-term Shift2Rail 4th Innovation Programme “IT Solutions for Attractive Railway Services”. Its main objective is to enable the development of solutions providing a seamless travel experience by giving access to a complete multimodal travel offer, which connects the first and last mile of long distance journeys. IP4’s vision should lead to a dramatic increase in ‘rail attractiveness’, generating sufficient growth in demand to support a major shift to rail, through a seamless travel experience, and a seamless access to all travel services by innovative digital technologies.
IT2Rails looks into a complete door-to-door intermodal journeys encompassing distinct modes of transportation, connecting the first and last mile to long distance journeys combining air, rail, coach and other services. IT2Rail integrates diverse existing and future services for planning, one-stop-shop ticketing and booking transactions, and real-time reaccommodation.
Through the introduction of radical new technologies and solutions, the European citizen’s global travel interactions will be transformed into a fully integrated and customised experience. It will further render the entire European transportation system a natural extension of citizens work and leisure environments, across all modes, local and long-distance, public and private.
